Don't stand out. Don't show weakness. Don't stand out. Don't show weakness.
What a loser!
Sheesh, she's so weak!
Not my problem.
Inventing Elliot by Graham Gardener
We don't want much from you.
We want you to join us.
Elliot Sutton is a 14 year old boy who starts his first day of high school at Holminster High. He is determined not to stand out in a positive or negative way. He invented a new Elliot.
Come one Elliot! Make the right Choice.
What took so long?
Hey! Elliot! Over here!
At school, he noticed other students being bullied by tougher or older students. Elliot did nothing to stop the bullying. He didn't want to be bullied himself. He didn't want a repeat of what happened in his last school.
Thank you for telling me this, Elliot. You've been a huge help.
One day, a feared group of Juniors summoned Elliot to the forest behind the school. They have other people people less athletic students when they tell them to. They were the Guardians. And they wanted Elliot to join them when they leave.
Elliot made friends with a bookworm named Louise and a one of the bullied targets, Ben. Elliot wanted to impress the Guardians but they didn't like Ben or Louise. Elliot didn't know who to choose.
At first, Elliot chose Richard and the Guardian, but after disappointing Louise and Ben, he decided to go against the Guardians. Elliot told the princapal about how the Guardians bully others. The Guardians hated Elliot after that, but he was protected.
